Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre presents “Peter Pan, Jr.”
Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Disney’s Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up… with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs and a story featuring one rousing adventure after another. Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook! It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero. There are multiple times that you can catch this presentation at the Bama Theatre. The times are Friday 7:00 pm- 9:00 pm, Saturday 2:00 pm- 4:00 pm, and 7:00 pm- 9:00 pm. Come out and show your support for the Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre.
Casting Crowns at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater
Chris Young isn’t the only artist playing the Amp this weekend. Casting Crowns will be back in town at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Friday night for their “Very Next Thing” tour performing soulful praise and worship music. They will be joined by special guest “I Am They.” The concert begins at 7:00 pm. Visit www.tuscaloosaamphitheater.com to purchase tickets.
Alabama Football’s A-Day Spring Game
The 2018 Golden Flake A-Day Spring Football Game will be played on Saturday, April 21, at 1 p.m. The annual A-Day Game is the 15th and final practice of the spring and takes place at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Admission will once again be free to the public. After the scrimmage, you will have the chance to go onto the football and walk around or take pictures. Some of the other highlights of A-Day include the Walk of Fame ceremony, where the 2017 captains will set their hands and cleats in cement at Denny Chimes and an alumni flag football game with former star players. A-Day is the perfect family event, so come out and support the Crimson Tide as they begin their road to number eighteen.
